TURCK’s Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology for Distributed I/O delivers a reliable solution across hardware platforms, this unique technology allows users to employ one device for three protocols—EtherNet/IP™, Modbus™TCP/IP and PROFINET®—creating easier integration with host control systems. Multiprotocol is designed to operate consistently across all TURCK distributed I/O product families, including on-machine, in-cabinet, modular and block I/O applications. The Industrial Ethernet Multiprotocol technology provides dependable application of the protocols for TURCK’s entire Industrial Ethernet portfolio, ensuring easy device application, minimal maintenance and simplified product specification.
TURCK’s Industrial Ethernet offering can be applied in any application that uses a host system with Modbus TCP/IP (client), EtherNet/IP (scanner) or PROFINET (master). Upon network power-up, the TURCK Ethernet device will recognize the network protocol available to the network.
This technology was designed to assist customers in supporting multiple protocols for their own customer base, rather than worrying about multiple part numbers or various feature sets across diverging product platforms.
The Multiprotocol technology will be available for a variety of TURCK Industrial Ethernet devices including BL20, BL67, BLCompact™ and Advanced I/O (AIM) stations.
